Do You Know All the Keyboard Shortcuts in Your DAW?
If you’ve been a subscriber for a while, you know that I’m a massive fan of productivity and efficiency.
I’ve written a book called Better Mixes in Less Time, which teaches you how to create a productivity system to get more mixes done from your home studio, and I’ve also created a crash course in becoming a faster home studio engineer with Quick Mixing, Mastering, and Editing.
Now, let me ask you a question, and it might be a weird one, but…
When you’re mixing in the box, do you use both hands?
Or do you flail your mouse around the screen with your right hand only?
Why do I ask? Because one of the best ways to become more efficient is to make more use of your left hand. Instead of clicking around the screen with your mouse all the time, make use of all the available keyboard shortcuts and put your left hand to work.
Once you put both hands on the wheel and start controlling your DAW like a computer game, things will become much more efficient.
However, it’s hard to remember where all the keyboard shortcuts are for your DAW. Not only does almost every single key have a specific function, but combined with the Shift or Cmd/Ctrl buttons, you’re doubling the functionality of your keyboard.
So, because you probably want to use what’s left of your memory to learn cool mixing tricks and random trivia knowledge to impress your next girlfriend, you might like this solution I discovered at NAMM.
